When we first met my husband used to joke about how I cooked multi course dinners with just a fork. This is hyperbole, but it is true I didn't have a microwave or a blender or a food processor or a mandolin or a meat thermometer, or.... well, you get the idea. It isn't that I didn't cook. I rarely ate out and baked bread weekly for a long time, and even made dozens of boxes of chocolates at Christmas time. I just never saw the sense of having more kitchen ware than I needed, and was happy to do things like kneeding dough by hand.

How much time do you spend thinking reasons why you "can't" do something? Why you can't lose weight, why you can't get the job you want, why you can't buy the house or car you want...etc.What if, instead, you asked yourself "How can I?" When you tell yourself you can't, you shut yourself off from any possibility of doing what you want and destroy any motivation to act. When you ask yourself, "How can I?" you open up your mind to think of possible solutions and you are motivated to act.
Yoga studios tend to have a certain look. Part of this has to do with the practical needs of doing yoga. For example, a carpeted floor tends to hold more dust, and is less desireable for a practice where your face is regularly close to the floor. Part has to do with the rather long and highly fluid history of the practice of yoga.
It’s your geography period in class, your textbook is open right there in front of you, you’re staring at it but you’re not reading a single word. It seems to you that your teacher is shouting in some foreign language and is trying to drill something unknown into your mind. Physically, you’re there in your class but your mind is not there! Don’t you think that this is a pretty common scenario among the kids, especially the teens? Most teachers even complain their parents about the same old problem of not concentrating in class.
What a person typically looks for from a personal trainer when they seek one out is typically different from what they look for from a yoga teacher. Just so the usual image of that a trainer looks and acts like tends to be different. Less so today, when there is so much overlap, with trainers starting to teach yoga, and yoga teachers offering individualized services that are more westernized than they used to be.
“Blink!... Blink!” ordered my ophthalmologist. Two ophthalmologists checked my eyes for nearsightedness, complete with the eternal question, “Which is better? One? Or two?” Turns out I needed a daily dose of eye drops, especially working in windy Foster City. Otherwise I could see perfectly fine.
